CAN: Network for Thousands of Applications Outside Automotive
Design How-To  
6/26/2003   Post a comment
First defined by the European automotive electronics company Robert Bosch GmbH as an internal project to develop an in-vehicle network in 1983, the controller-area network (CAN) is still commonly associated with the worldwide automotive industry. But it's hard to keep a robust, simple, and versatile network protocol confined to a single market segment. Jack Shandle describes the standard and its applications outside of the automotive industry.

Design How-To  
6/18/2003   1 comment
This article describes a design of a simple digital device able to connect two Ethernet MACs with configurable point-to-point link (Reverse MII Interface block). This link is proposed to be a simple and low-cost alternative to using Ethernet PHY in the system. The block might be used either inside an ASIC or on the system board (FPGA). The device described emulates two Ethernet PHY-level blocks connected together and is completely transparent to Ethernet MACs.

Power Management Chip Vendors Zero in on Wireless
News & Analysis  
6/3/2003   Post a comment
Power-managing ICs in wireless products are now playing a major role in system-level solutions. Cell phones, which are being combined with PDAs and cameras, are becoming increasingly small, dense and power-hungry, offsetting the size and energy density advances made by the lithium-ion battery sources powering them.
